* We are planning to re-open our elementary children’s ministries on 10/4. As our children’s ministry is a partnership between the church and families, we are happy to invite parents to participate in the education of our children.
If you are interested in becoming a partner in this ministry, please contact Wendy Matchett.
* We will encourage families to pre-register their kids for the upcoming week so that we can be assured we have enough Safe Sanctuary trained people in place to provide a safe environment.
You may bring the filled out form on your child(ren)’s first day at Kids Konnection.
Registration not required- but very helpful for planning purposes and Safe Sanctuary accountability.
Preschool Kids Konnection
The mission of our Children’s Ministries is to know Jesus and make Him known through caring adults who build positive relationships with children, helping them to grow in their relationships with God.
Kids Konnection is our Sunday morning worship, teaching and team time. A wide array of children and youth programs begin at 10 a.m. on Sundays.
Preschool-aged children are welcomed into one of two classrooms based on their ages- one “Older” class for ages 4, 5 and Kindergarteners or one “Younger” class for 2 and 3 year-olds.
Each Sunday our teachers present part of an engaging themed month-long unit, which covers one of three solid Christian principles for preschoolers:
God Made Me, God Loves Me and Jesus Wants to be My Friend Forever.
To keep our children safe, we follow Safe Sanctuary guidelines and will add an additional classroom if needed, to keep group numbers of children small.
Children and teachers are encouraged to wear a mask or face shield.
At this time, we plan to limit the teaching experience to within the classroom to teach kids about Jesus and His love for them. We will use worship music and dance motions, while encouraging social distancing. Children will hear a Bible story from the Old or New Testament each week, or we will focus on one of the three Christian principles. There will be an age appropriate video that will accompany the main idea and we may also have a coloring page or a very simple craft to reinforce the lesson.
We hope that you consider having your healthy preschooler join us for safe worship and some Good God Time at Hempfield UMC when you feel ready.
We are here,
Wendy Matchett, Coordinator for Preschool Sunday ministries
